Subject: 2021 individual donations for the Speech and Language Charity Donation Program of the Medford Valley Scottish Rite.
If you would like to make an individual donation for the 2021 fiscal year to the Speech and Language Charity Program of Medford Valley Scottish Rite, please send your donation check to the Medford Valley office before the end of the 2021 year. Donations over $100.00 will qualify you for a 2021 individual tax credit for your donation to the Oregon Scottish Rite Speech and Language Charity as described below.
The Medford Valley Scottish Rite initiated a program a few years ago to support the Oregon Scottish Rites’ Speech and Language Charity. This program will allow the members of the Medford Valley Scottish Rite to join other Valleys in the Orient of Oregon in supporting the Oregon Scottish Rite Speech and Language Charity which is a 501 (c) (3) private foundation. This Charity was created over 36 years ago by the Oregon Scottish Rite members. Its purpose is to provide young Oregon children who struggle with a multitude of communication issues to overcome their communications challenges.
Our Donation Program will partner with the Orient Program and help support a vibrant network of collaborations with Oregon University programs in speech-language pathology and selected non-profits affiliated with the Universities such as; the Speech and Hearing Sciences Program at Portland State University (SPHR) which is one such program. We are simultaneously supporting the training of the next generation of speech-language pathologists with our contributions.
Our partnership provides the Oregon Scottish Rite, the PSU, SPHR program, and the Hello Clinic an opportunity to strengthen their reach to children with communications challenges. It also allows speech-language pathology graduate students to broaden their clinical experience under the supervision of seasoned clinicians to qualify for their certifications.
Your support of this program and your generous contributions to the Oregon Speech and Language Charity will be greatly appreciated. These contributions will bring needed assistance to young patients whose lives will be greatly benefitted by your generous gift.
Please make your checks payable to: Oregon Scottish Rite Speech and Language Charity
